Subject: solvent alternatives

Hello, I am currently working with a screen printer that prints on vinyl
He uses oil-based inks and heat cures to set the ink. They are using
Camie 480 screen opener from individual aerosol cans to clean the
screens during the run, then Barsol A-2845 to clean screen after use
with a final spray clean of CAmie. Does anyone have suitable
substitutes for these solvents?
i would like to replace both products with one that can be purchase in
bulk and used with refillable pressurized containers and recaptured for
Any suggestions? any and all comments appreciated,
sherry davis
